What we did in class, today – After reviewing how to write an introduction for a cause or effect essay and logical flow of ideas, students revised their effect essay introduction. Thanks go to Sarah F. in Section 6 for allowing us to use her introduction as a model introduction.
Next, we looked at the development of an effect body paragraph. Afterwards, students began revising their body paragraphs.
